Notes from the ecopsychological expressive art work-bench: Summer Time Reflection
Sown Spring seeds have rooted and risen forth towards the light.
we reach with easels and paintbrushes
with fairy houses and theater performances
with penciled ideas and clay figurines
with snuffling muzzles attempting to understand creativity in ourselves and the world around us:
to give thanks to all who share in producing
our garden of creativity, this Summer:
some have creatively reached far-
like the sunflowers randomly sown betwixt the vegetables
or the wild asparagus amidst the field grass
others have ripened and are ready to be picked.
I send a special thank you to all who supported this community
growing, learning, creating
Just as we have a bounty to harvest in our hearts and minds and overflowing community gardens
May we also remember those who have come before us and have passed on….
May our memories of them inspire us to carry on:
Planting, growing, learning, creating
– a bit more lovingly
with each other
so that future generations can do the same as we
if not better.
